We have a number of opportunities for volunteers to support the hospital during the pandemic! All new volunteers must complete an application form and give permission for a DBS Check which is required for both volunteers working in the hospital or as a trustee. 

To enable us to process your application swiftly, please email the following to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

  • Your completed application form
  • Scanned copies of the relevant 3 or 5 identity documents as specified in this DBS checking guidance  
  • A head and shoulder photo of yourself so that we can prepare an ID badge for you

What happens next?

On receipt of your application, we will contact you to discuss next steps which will include booking you onto an Induction training session and a health check risk assessment for your protection.

The services we offer and the current vacancies will be discussed at the Induction Sessions.

Should you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact  Karen Tomlinson, Kristine Davies or Willy Goldschmidt.
